5.0 out of 5 stars Imagination that is out of this world! 5 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This book is a must buy for anyone remotely interested in 'The Dark Crystal' or 'Labyrinth' films. Each character is drawn with every attention to detail by Brian Froud (nobody else better at this stuff!). Add another dimension to those tales of Gobilns and weird fantasy creatures with a fantastic narrative provided by Terry Jones.

4.0 out of 5 stars These characters look familiar from somewhere 26 Feb 2001
These are the Labyrinth Goblins, described in a dryly humorous manner that will make you chuckle... 4 stars precisely because there could have been more description, but don't let that put you off.
If you believe in Magic, these guys are for you. Otherwise, forget it.

5.0 out of 5 stars essential work for the goblin fans 10 Feb 2000
I read the german version of this book and I can only say that I am overwhelmed. The drawings are astonishing. Background information are supplied for every one of them goblins. This book is written and drawn with a lot of love and a smile. I can only recommend it to everyone interested in the field.

I bought this book under the assumption that it was a separate work from the old "The Goblins of Labyrinth" released quite a few years earlier. After all, there is nothing to indicate this is the case anywhere on the cover. Don't be fooled; there is nothing new here.

I am giving this book five stars because it is still after all a fun read and is actually much more nicely packaged than previous incarnations, but it's a shame we've seen it all before.

If, like me, you are a big fan of Labyrinth and want a bigger glimpse into it's world then I highly recommend you buy this book but only if, unlike me, you don't already own "The Goblins of Labyrnith", otherwise you'll just be wasting your money.
